In the heart of Vrindavan’s landscape lies the Bageecha Farmhouse by Indian architecture practice The Melange Studio. Completed in 2024, this residential project nestles along the main road of Prem Mandir, revealing a linear layout inspired by the elongated proportions of the south-facing plot — thus maximizing views and embracing the vast agricultural surroundings all while enjoying a privileged yet secluded position. Moreover, the design, while essentially contemporary, revolves around traditional principles such as Vastu Shastra and courtyard architecture. Together, these elements emulate a timeless aesthetic.

brutalist exteriors meet tranquil, warm interiors

 

Geometric blocks punctuate the facade of the Bageecha Farmhouse, framing picturesque views of the lush greenery and inviting the outdoors into the living spaces. The Melange Studio team meticulously envisioned each room to maximize natural light and offer panoramic vistas. Upon entering the residence, residences come across an interplay of volumes and textures, characterized by exposed raw finishes that exude warmth and character. While the exterior is quite rugged and brutalist, the interiors radiate quiet elegance and tranquility, reflecting the persona of the client—an ex-army official with a penchant for simplicity and understated luxury. Expansive windows blur the boundaries between indoors and outdoors, inviting the rural landscape into every corner of the living spaces.

bageecha farmhouse reveals a sustainable & sensory design

 

Central to the design concept is the bio pond, strategically positioned between the main living and dining areas, serving as a focal point that breathes life into the space. Formal and informal gathering areas merge, offering residents a multifunctional layout for hosting and leisure. ‘The Bageecha farmhouse celebrates farm living, encouraging a symbiotic relationship between the occupants and the natural world, including the client’s affinity for animals,’ notes the practice. Bageecha Farmhouse was also built with sustainability and user well-being in mind. The design maximizes natural light and ventilation, while raw materials and rustic finishes augment the sensory experience. From climatic planning to courtyard design, every aspect of the residence is meticulously crafted.
